PJOPS Retrochart w/e 21/06/80 - Deadline Midnight Saturday 11 June

THE PJOPS RETROCHART
We are taking a trip down memory lane



graph-icon-white.png
The Rules

- This is a retrochart which commenced week ending 5 January 1980.

- This week is week ending 21 June 1980. Your deadline is MIDNIGHT Saturday 11 June.

- Post in the thread or start a new conversation with me with your top 10/20/100 songs of each week.

- Each week I will post a list of new entries and releases that are eligible to chart and links to international charts.

- The list will not be exhaustive and you are free to add any more obscure songs on your personal list released up to that date (within the prior 6 months) or songs contemporaneously charting on international charts. If you do I would appreciate any links to evidence the release date or chart history to update the archive.

- You are free to use your own personal charts from the time (if you have them) or create an updated list for this chart.

- Please rank your songs from your favourite downwards. (eg #1 down to #100)

- Your #1 gets 100 points, #2 gets 99 points etc

- The weekly PJOPS Retrochart is compiled from accumulated points each week.

- It would be fantastic if you could regularly contribute lists but understandably there may be weeks you can not. If someone fails to contribute towards a weekly chart their previous week’s choices will be frozen and contribute to the chart but the points will be halved. This is to prevent wild fluctuations in chart positions depending on contributions.

This was fucking hard...
 
My Retrochart will be posted later this evening, but first, here's some makers and shakers from my chart - are they in yours?:

Number 39 - new entry for Darts and their version of "Let's hang on" - with the video shot at the newly opened theme park "Alton Towers":

 
Number 36 - new entry for The Human League and "Empire State Human" - David Bowie is calling them "the sound of the 80's" and The Undertones have already had a hit this year name checking them - but can they crack into the mainstream?:

 
Number 30 - new entry for Splodgenessabounds and "Two pints of larger and a packet of crisps" - no it's not an advert - it's a song from this indie crew. There's a rumour going round that one day the BBC will "steal" the title for a sitcom set in Newcastle, North East England….!:

 
Number 25 - new entry for UB40 and their second single release/hit this year. Another double "A" side - here's "My way of thinking":

 
Number 23 - New entry - they might have split up but try telling that to Virgin Records who release the Sex Pistols version of "I'm not your stepping stone" and it's an instant hit in The Cubster region!:

 
Number 16 - this week's highest new entry is "Xanadu" by Olivia Newton John and ELO. The second single (and second ELO single in the Top 40 this week!) from the forthcoming film called "Xanadu" starring Olivia - but there is no sign of John Travolta anywhere - maybe he can't roller-skate?:

 
Last edited:
Number five - climbing up from number nine is Don Mclean and his version of "Crying" - he's just reached number one on the mainstream UK chart but can he do the same on the Retrochart?:
